how can this be wired up?


Novice Member
I have a Yamaha A3030 AV amp and one of these Funktion-One | Products | Microbass 210

Is there any way I can wire this so the Yamaha runs the bass bin? The sub has 2x 16ohm drivers, but a nominal impedance of 8ohms. There are two inputs on the sub so I guess one input will run the pair of drivers at 8ohms / or if both inputs are used it will run at 2x 16ohm - although I don't think the amp will do 16ohms.

The amps specs are:
  • --- 230 W per channel (4 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9 % THD, 1 ch driven [European Model])
  • --- 150 W per channel (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.06 % THD, 2 ch driven)
  • --- 230 W per channel (8 ohms, 1 kHz, 10 % THD, 1 ch driven, JEITA)

I would also need a passive crossover(s).

Failing this, I guess the easiest method would be to run one of the Yamaha's sub-RCA's into an external power amp.

The Yamaha is only running 5 channels (2+2 bi-wired to the fronts, one to the rears), I still have another 2 pairs of outputs. Seems a waste to use a power amp when these channels are spare, if they can be used of course.

Any help much appreciated.
